At a small kosher restaurant the menu read Chakchouka. When we asked what it was we were told by the Israeli owner that it was a common breakfast or lunch meal. Of course we had to try it. Very good, spicy, yet tasty. I wrote down the "bare essentials" of the recipe on a napkin and then tried it at home.
